31 Days of Horror 2021

31 Days of Horror 2021

When Morbidly Beautiful was launched on October 1st, 2015, our very first feature was a month-long 31 DAYS OF HORROR celebration, where we watched and reviewed a new to us horror movie every day in October.

At that time, it was mostly me doing the reviews since we were in our infancy, and I had yet to recruit such a stellar team of writing talent. This annual tradition continued for four years, with more and more writers contributing to our curated lists.

In 2019, while we still published a ton of great content throughout the spooky month, we decided to take a break from our 31 DAYS OF HORROR tradition. Then, in 2020, we felt it was important to return given the pandemic lockdown. With our collective need for great streaming content greater than ever, as most of us were forced to forego all other Halloween festivities, we mixed things up a bit and focused on killer genre films that were readily available to stream. We called it 31 DAYS OF HALLOSTREAM, and it was a big hit!

This year, as we celebrate our sixth year in operation, I wanted to return to our roots and revisit the original concept: a brief review of a first-time horror movie watch every day for the month of October. As new reviews get posted, I’ll be adding them to this page along with a brief synopsis. My hope is that you, right along with us here at Morbidly Beautiful, will be able to discover some great new indie horror that may have otherwise flown under the radar.

October 1: TITANE (Julia Docournau, 2021)

Surprising at every turn, it’s at times wickedly funny, distressing and revolting, stylishly seductive, and ultimately quite moving. Debunking stereotypes linked to gender identity and ideas of heteronormativity, while making Cronenberg devotees salivate, TITANE deserves every bit of the hype. It will drive you to the very edge of your comfort zone and then unapologetically accelerate.

October 2: No One Gets Out Alive (Santiago Menghini, 2021)

NO ONE GETS OUT ALIVE is a tight hour and a half of a movie that is well-paced and engaging. Based on Adam Nevill’s novel, Santiago Menghini’s horror feature debut combines elements of real-world horror facing many undocumented immigrants with more traditionally terrifying genre conventions. A fun, thoughtful, and creepy little oddball, it’s an absolutely perfect way to pass an autumnal evening. Well played, Netflix.

October 3: 

Much like mushrooms themselves, it’s likely not to everyone’s taste, but if you’re the type of fan who likes their horror cheap, cheesy, and cheerful, FUNGICIDE is an absolute delight.

October 4: 

Hard-core horror fans with blood lust, need to see this film. There was something gruesome to love in every scene of V/H/S 94. Even if some of the segments are more successful than others, each one was strong horror in its own twisted way. Some directors are new to the V/H/S franchise, and some have been here before, but all of them have a great future in genre filmmaking.
